Hawker Tornado    P5224                               (c/n


                                    The Tornado was the Hurricane replacement designed around the Rolls-Royce Vulture power
                                    plant.   Its stablemate, the Typhoon (which went on into production) had the Napier Sabre engine.
                                    Both were designed to Air Ministry Spec F18/37.  P5224 was the second prototype, although
                                    its first flight (on 5 December 1940) was significantly delayed due to pressure in the Hawker works
                                    to produce Hurricanes.   When Rolls Royce cancelled the Vulture programme (due to reliability
                                    issues) the Tornado orders (to have been built by Avro) were also cancelled.
